All About LoG-Sacrament
I don't usually go to karaoke bars, but I got dragged to one this weekend. Some guy was hitting on a girl in a wheelchair and then spontaneously sang Stand By Me. She then followed this up with a rendition of Lean On Me. They both left the bar separately. Perhaps I should go to karaoke bars more often.
I just felt like this had to be documented.
9Jul 09Michael Jackson had been out of the news for a while. His music sales had been dismal (what do you expect when you haven't released an album in eight years?). Lack of publicity and music sales are about the last thing a pop star needs. Well fret no more, Michael Jackson fans. Since June 25, MJ has been on the rise. Every major news station has transformed into entertainment news and lapped up every last drop of Jackson developments. Even music sales skyrocketed. From June 25 to July 1, Michael Jackson sold 2.3 million songs. Ladies and gentemen, the King of Pop is back!
One of my uncles finally snapped. He gets work only by the occasional good will of others, mostly from a lack of trying. All he has had going in his life for decades is drugs, so it was going to take its toll sooner or later. Admittedly, he probably could've been let down a little more gently, but its been brought on by himself.
My grandparents got word that he wasn't doing well, so they sent his brother in to see what was going on. He walked in to the house (formerly my late great uncles', but lent to my uncle to get him on his feet) and was greeted by the strench of rot. The place was covered in decayed food and who knows what else. My uncle was there waiting.
His brother asked how he was doing. He got a response that went along the lines of "I'm going to kill myself. But first, two people need to die." Shortly after that, he grabbed a butcher's knife and went after his brother. He wasn't too limber at the time (he's usually on painkillers), so he was not able to do any damage. He never named who the two people were, butI suspect one was his brother.
The police finally came and took my uncle away. No charges were pressed. All they could do was institutionalize him. Due to a Florida law, he'll be out in 72 hours.
